It's been just over a week since the baby's visitation. What a sad event. Please keep praying for the family.

I've spent the last week dealing with fever and then the stomach flu. I'm feeling better today, but still weak and tired. Of course, in the middle of my being sick, the washing machine went out. I finally got a shower taken this morning and we headed to Sears. The new one seems to be working much better than our previous GE. The trip to town wore me out though.

I haven't gotten much knitting done, although I do almost have A's socks done. They're really pretty.

I've been keeping up with the legislature and trying to warn others of the stealth legislation that they are getting to vote. So far, "theraputic cloning" has passed our senate and "Fair Share" legislation is pending in the house. Our local senator has denied both and I have the opportunity to confront him tomorrow during a "coffee", but I don't know that I feel up to it.

I've decided to have a spot on my leg checked. I've had it for several years and it's only about 1/2 in. in diameter, but I finally decided to have it checked out. Given my tendancy to get anxious, I'm asking for prayer. The appointment isn't until March 22, but March is my rough month. I'm trusting God that whatever the outcome, He'll give me what I need to deal with it (and I don't really think it's anything).

Please pray for a friend of mine. She was one of my knitting students last fall and we were planning on starting up again to make a felted bag. Anyway, her 11-month-old daughter died Saturday. They think she had a seizure, but aren't sure. She had already lost another child. It's so sad and I've just been stunned since I heard about it. I can't imagine the pain she and her husband must be in.

It is freezing!! My little girlies are coming this weekend and we are going to be stuck in the house. It makes me nervous having to get out in the frigid air and with two 5-year-olds, I really don't like it. But, this is really only weekend that we can for awhile and it's hard to explain it to them if we have to change dates. It should be okay, I'm going to buy some snacks and I've already got them some Polly Pockets and puzzles, so with a good movie, we should be just fine.

Last night, my mom and my two daughters and I went to see "The Phantom of the Opera". Oh my goodness!!! It was absolutely wonderful! I've listened to the music, seen the movie, but had never been to the play. I would highly recommend it! By the end of the play, I was so lost in the music and the story, oh.

We're having little lambs. I'm hoping they slow down during this cold snap.

As challenging as it is, I'm trying to stay on top of the political situation. Since our state became controlled by the Democrats they are having a gleeful time rushing legislation from committee to the floor to the governor and boom, we have new laws! I'm checking the website everyday to follow what's going on and I'm letting my senator know how I feel. I need to be doing the same thing on the federal level, but I'm not sure I can stomach it. The level of hype and self-promotion is making me sick.
